It is the luck of the draw on where within the tolerance the each part comes. Every single part that comes off the line gets check to a +/- range. If all of them wide up on the + side, this stack could cause the issue. The odds of that happening are quite low (or if engineered correctly, impossible).

Do your do-diligence checking the parts, but if everything is still out, I'd chalk it up to stack and not let it bother you. It is possible nothing is actually wrong. There are corrective bushings, plates, etc. that one can purchase to give you adjustments beyond the factory ranges, you just might need one. A good alignment shop should be able to suggest the right solution.
